How to have a good time in Belgrade - Serbia
People asked me ‘Why are you going there? - The only things to to in Belgrade is drinking Rakija!’ Well, they were right about the Rakjia but they weren’t right about it being the only thing to do in this vibrant city. Serbia’s capital is full of unique experiences, beautiful sunset viewing platforms and the most scrumptious food. Here is a short list of how to have a good time in Belgrade - watch the vlog after to get the full experience.
1. Go with friends - I know this is against what every solo traveller would tell you, but honestly, Belgrade demands a group visit. All suggestions I’m making below are so much more fun with friends. Trust me you will make memories that last a lifetime. Sure you can make friends in Belgrade, but I am talking friends that you have known since you were just about old enough to imagine your first trip abroad. I’m still printing some of our photos from our Belgrade trip and am running out of space on my shelf soon!
2. Drink Rakija! - I was introduced to it by my friend saying: ‘In my village they make it in their back garden!’ :D Really? Maybe.. maybe not! Either way it is a strong Serbian alcoholic drink that will blow your socks off and will keep you partying all night without a headache - I’m a fan! And of course: Drink responsibly! :)
3. Spend time in local restaurants! - It might seem obvious to some of you but it’s too easy to be lead by shiny new clubs and newly built restaurants. The real gems of Belgrade are old, traditional and local restaurants. Honestly I never had a better time in any restaurant abroad than the night we went to visit Zlatni Bokal! We danced on the tables, we sang, we danced a little more, we ate amazing local food and we had Rakija! It was an evening I will never forget.
4. Visit Kalemegdan - Kalemegdan is is a park which is particularly beautiful during sunset. It’s huge, it offers you amazing view points of Belgrade and it is simply perfect for a long relaxed walk after partying the whole night in a local restaurant. This is exactly what we did and it was just perfect.
